This picture was taken right after I became a partner in a whiskey and cigar business with these 2 great partners.
One of them walks up to me and hands me a Glencairn glass of whiskey.
“THIS is a 1978 Glenmorangie Pride finished in a Bordeaux cask – a $7,000 bottle of whiskey.”
Instantly I was wide-eyed with a huge grin on my face.
The moment hardly seemed real.
I enjoy whiskey and a cigar,
But I had never tasted anything like this.
That moment was about so much more than just whiskey.
It was a celebration of hard work, perseverance, and a job well done.
4 months of negotiations to bring me in as a partner in this great business.
A moment WORTHY of a great celebration.
Now don’t take this the wrong way….
I’m not saying you should go drink a $7,000 bottle of whiskey EVERY time you celebrate…
The celebration should match the accomplishment.
Sometimes that’s an expensive whiskey,
Sometimes it’s a nice meal and a relaxing night in with family.
Don’t keep going from one challenge to the next without pausing to celebrate.
Make time for those celebratory moments.
You’ll be glad you did.
